The religious run to the church to seek peace and God, the spiritual seek the sanctuary within, they are convinced that the only way out is within. A free mind is like a flying bird, it can reach to the inner depths of anything and uncover the secrets therein hidden. It is like an empty jar, open to receive whatever may be poured into it. It is like a blank scroll, upon which secretes are written upon, with a golden pen of light. He who must therefore develop the power of the mind must first learn to completely still his thoughts.

“If happiness consist of virtuous activity, it must be the activity of the highest virtue, or in other words, of the best part of our nature. …We conclude then that happiness reaches as far as the power of thought does, and that the greater a person’s power of thought, the greater will be his happiness; […]

Many are left with many unanswered questions when they hear the concept of soul, spirit and body. Others who think they understand it never really do. Majority of us however, understand what the body is, while the spirit and soul remain elusive. The reason being that we can see and touch the body, but we cannot touch or see the spirit and soul. It is not that the spirit and soul is not there for us to see or feel, the problem is that we do not know how to see or feel it. Yet there are few clairvoyant men and women who know how to.
Many religious people talk about the soul and spirit of man, but only a few of them can explain to an inquisitive man what the soul really is. Many of them have never seen a spirit, neither have they seen the abode of departed souls. How then can one teach what he does not know? You hear may of the religious say they believe by faith. My question is, do they also teach by faith?
The truth is, faith has ever worked first by believing in things unseen. Believing in things unseen is the second phase of faith. For the key to faith lies principally in spiritual knowledge. This is why a master must appear to teach and enlighten, as evident in all religion. One cannot have faith in Christianity if Jesus Christ did not come to teach, a Buddhist will never accept the precepts of Buddhism, if Buddha did not come to teach it. Muslims will not have faith in their method of bending to the east to pray if Mohammed did not impact spiritual knowledge. One thing all of these masters and teachers had in common is that they taught with spiritual knowledge and not by faith. When one has spiritual knowledge, then one works from a position of power and strength, from which faith is anchored.
What then is the soul of man? A man’s soul is his light body or energy body, it is a man’s true universal identity and his connection to realms above the earthly realm. When a soul descends into the earthly realm, it becomes a living soul, when it ascends it becomes a quickened soul. Souls vibrate, and it is this vibration that separates them into different realms upon separation from earth.
Each soul can only dwell in the realm where it vibrates in harmony with. Within a man’s soul is registered all his emotions, thoughts and imaginations, all vices and virtues. When a man suffers on earth, his soul suffers and not the man; remember, he is not a living man, but rather a living soul. All things in nature, including nature itself, follow the universal laws; the soul of man is not exempted. Therefore, a lower vibrating soul on earth, upon death must remain in the same lower vibrating energy and light. Where are the religious. When they say in your holy books ye are like gods, what do you think they mean? Your earthly perishable bodies or your universal eternal soul.
A man’s spirit is different, many say the soul is the spirit, and the spirit the soul. The spirit is the intermediary between the soul and the body. The spirit is the vehicle of the body and soul, it is the active agent that awakens and enlivens the body and the soul. Without the spirit, the body becomes inactive, and the soul cannot dwell within. Like the soul, it is energy and light, this is why it is likened to the soul.
All breath, all emotions, all thoughts and imaginations are product of the spirit, imprinted within a soul. We therefore must be careful what we think about, for all thoughts, imaginations and emotions are registered in the soul. Where are the religious who believe in a book of judgment and a judgment day? Where are all of you who wonder how it is possible for all our actions to be recalled during judgment. Wonder no more, for within your earthly perishable body, is an eternal soul made of light and energy, where all your thoughts, imaginations, actions, and emotions are imprinted, and upon death it is recalled like a book in an eternal light.
If one was to speak to the dead, or to one who has had a severe near-death experience, they will tell you how quickly their life on earth had flashed before their eyes, like a moving picture. To them, there are no more misconceptions of what the body, soul and spirit is or is not. For in truth, death gives us all perspective and wisdom. Must one now die, before attaining wisdom? Nay! find a way to die while living, and upon your lap you shall find all wisdom running over.

My weary eyes to bed I sleep.
So much void and darkness I feared the worse.
Suddenly creeping into my sleepy head,
My thoughts, my contemplation while awake.
Dancing and calling out to me,
Pulling me from one scene to the other.
My dreams, my dreams what stories are you telling this time.
An illusion or reality I fear I may never know.
Sometimes I am conscious, other times I am not.
But when I awake and remember,
That my thoughts invaded my privacy, I am convinced I invited them.
Dear dreamer, what stories are you telling this time,
About another you saw in your dreams.
Hush now, for you tell your own story,
For a man is known always by his dreams.
